Approval/Edits of April minutes

And they were.


Oregon Promise/Degree Partnership students and START orientation

Question was posed: Should Oregon PROMISE students attend START. Transfer student services has been getting a lot of inquiries about START from anxious students waiting to hear from the state regarding their status. Students have been told that it is OK to sign up for START and then make a decision. AAC recommends that this practice halt and that only students who intend to matriculate for the upcoming term (Fall) attend START.


Questions around graduation/commencement communications, application, and audits

Can Cancellations roll more easily, particularly with pending I/grades?

Rebecca will follow up.


Registrar Updates (if needed)

Still need more Commencement volunteers


Nominations for Academic Advising Chair elect

Nicole Kent proved herself wily and seconded these nominations.

Election will be held at June meeting.
